Overview


Be inspired by the fairytale beauty and romantic spirit of the castle-laden, vineyard-rich Rhine. The Rhine River is your gateway to a truly enchanting journey. Sail her shimmering tide past stately castles, lush hillside vineyards, and storybook towns. You’ll discover highlights of four countries, The Netherlands, Germany, France and Switzerland, on this itinerary that transports you into a fairytale world, one full of romance and beauty. And Uniworld’s Epicurean Adventurer Program™ gives you unique experiences like an exclusive wine tasting at Castle Vollrads in Germany, a Black Forest cake-baking demonstration and tasting, and much more. Flowers tumble from baskets lining streets of half-timbered houses, and lights glint off quiet canals. A mighty river carries ships and cargo through a landscape shaped by time and history. The spires of Medieval churches and castles appear around each bend in the river, and vineyards climb the verdant hillsides. Cruise along the Rhine—Germany on one side, France on the other—and savor French joie de vivre and German Gemütlichkeit . Discover Alsace, whose dual French and German heritage has given it fabulous food and a wine-making tradition that goes back to the Romans. Bicycle beside the river, passing Roman ruins and Romanesque churches. Marvel at castles that were once mighty fortresses guarding territory and trade routes, and that now tower above the water as romantic ruins. Visit the fairytale cities of Riquewihr, Kayserberg, Colmar, Strasbourg, and Rüdesheim, and taste delightful white wines in the villages where the grapes are grown. Beethoven and Byron loved the romantic landscapes of the Rhine River. The beauty that inspired them is still yours to experience.

  • Cologne

    Day 2

    Cologne

    22 Oct 2018

    You simply cannot visit Cologne without paying homage to its most notorious site, the Gothic masterpiece that serves as the city’s cathedral. A local expert will show you favorite haunts around the Old Town and share some of the cathedral’s most intriguing and Magi-cal secrets with you.   Cologne is the largest and oldest city of the Rhineland and a cultural mecca, with more than 30 museums and hundreds of art galleries. A congenial atmosphere and a mix of ancient, modern and reconstructed buildings characterize the heart of the city.

    Featured Excursion:
    Cologne walking discovery tour with Cologne Cathedral

  • Koblenz

    Day 3

    Koblenz

    23 Oct 2018

    No other river valley on earth boasts more castles than the Rhine, and today you’ll have an opportunity to experience real-life “Game of Thrones” ambiance deep within the medieval walls of Marksburg Castle. Not into dungeons and dragons? Get to know Koblenz, a historic town with a colorful past and eclectic architecture, and enjoy a walking discovery tour.   Today brings you a plethora of Rhine delights. You begin in Koblenz, a 2,000-year-old town at the northern end of the most scenic section of the Rhine, where you’ll decide between two very different experiences, a walking tour of medieval Koblenz or explore one of the most extraordinary castles on the banks of the river—followed by yet another choice: You see a close up view of the beautiful region via bicycle, or once you arrive in Boppard, you can opt to take a leisurely stroll through the fascinating village.

    Featured Excursion:

    Choice of Koblenz walking discovery tour or Marksburg Castle or Exclusive guided “Let's Go” bicycle ride or Boppard village stroll

    Cruising the romantic Rhine

    24 Oct 2018

    Experience Germany’s fabled Rhine River in one of two ways—an exclusive tasting of estate-grown Rieslings at Castle Vollards or an invigorating vineyard hike.   Your floating hotel arrives in Rüdesheim, one of the most charming ports of call in the Rhine Valley. This city has a long history going back to Roman times and is famous for the Drosselgasse, a narrow, bustling lane of shops and wine bars, as well as its impressive Niederwald Monument, built to celebrate the re-establishment of the German empire in the late 19th century. You may opt to visit a renowned vineyard or, for a more active jaunt, take the long way shoreward from Niederwald with a vineyard hike that includes a stop at a unique museum.

    Featured Excursion:

    Choice of Exclusive Castle Vollrads wine tasting or Exclusive guided “Let's Go” hike from Rüdesheim to Assmanshausen

  • Rudesheim, Germany

    Day 4

    Rudesheim, Germany

    24 Oct 2018

    Well known for its winemaking, Rudesheim is a Rhine Valley town so well known for its winemaking that the town’s medieval Brömserburg Castle also houses a wine museum inside its walls

    Destination guide
  • Day 5


    Germersheim

    25 Oct 2018

    Expect the unexpected in Speyer, where ancient treasures harmoniously co-exist with modern day innovation. For something really unexpected, venture into a spooky, candlelit tasting room to sample flavorful elixirs made from wine vinegars. Utterly unique and surprisingly delicious, and something you’ll experience with no other river cruise line.   The ship docks in Germersheim, where you’ll have to choose between boarding a motorcoach to the nearby town of Speyer for a guided walking tour or taking in an exclusive tasting at a local vinegar estate.

    Featured Excursion:

    Choice of Speyer walking discovery tour or Exclusive Doktorenhof vinegar estate visit and tasting

  • Day 6


    Kehl

    26 Oct 2018

    Strasbourg is invariably described as quaint, a rather overused word that in this case is perfectly apropos. Whether you see it via a canal boat or on foot with an insightful local expert, this historic town with its cobbled lanes, half-timbered homes, giant stork nests and impossible-to-resist pastry shops will win your heart.   Kehl, directly across the river from Strasbourg, will be your ship’s base while you explore the Alsatian capital, which is known as the “Crossroads of Europe” for its strategic location halfway between Paris and Prague. You may choose to see Strasbourg via its historic canals (the way Strasbourg has been seen by its visitors through the centuries), which would give you an enlightening and relaxing overview of this historically important city. Or you may experience the historic core as the locals do, with an exclusive walking tour. If you’re feeling adventurous, take advantage of Uniworld’s bicycles or Nordic walking sticks and explore the banks of the river.

    Featured Excursion:

    Choice of Strasbourg panoramic tour with cathedral and Old Town visit or Exclusive “Do as the Locals Do” Strasbourg walking tour

  • Breisach

    Day 7

    Breisach

    27 Oct 2018

    Look up “charming and “picturesque” in the dictionary and it could very well show images of today’s choice of destinations—two of Alsace’s best-known wine villages or a town some have hailed as the prettiest in the world. Is it really? See for yourself from our uniquely Uniworld perspective.   A charming town dominated by a 17th-century hilltop cathedral, Breisach is your gateway to the Alsatian wine road. This is your launching point for one of two excursions along the celebrated route des vins, which hugs the foothills of the Vosges mountain range. You can visit Kaysersberg and Riquewihr, two of the most picturesque villages in the region, or take a tour of the larger town of Colmar, considered one of the most beautiful destinations along the wine road and the capital of Alsatian wines. If you’re interested in doing something a bit more physically challenging, you could stay in Breisach and walk or bike through the surrounding vineyards.

    Featured Excursion:

    Choice of Alsatian “Village Day” or Colmar city tour

    A special Captain’s Farewell Reception and Dinner will be prepared for you this evening
